Re: Ike jogging back to the NW?


The current forecast has it at a Cat 2 about 90 miles inland at Halletsville -- 104 miles from San Antonio, 115 miles from Houston -- and headed straight for Austin 74 miles away. This has more than a few similarities to Katrina, such as size and forecast strength. The storm surge damage along the coast east of its path could be as severe.

With the current path ~50 miles west of our home, we will be leaving tomorrow. Hope my boat off Galveston Bay makes it.

Just out - our City has ordered a "mandatory" evacuation beginning at 10 PM tonight.
